I am getting ready to apply to LPN school. The schools that I am applying to don't have a required number of observation hours. How many do you think would be good? Also is there a certain department that is better to observe in than another?

I've never heard of having to observe. Actually performing skills, yes, during clinical instruction. The number of hours required for clinicals is probably set by your state's board of nursing. I know that for my program we have 90 hours of clinical during 3rd term and 120 during 4th. I also had clinicals in the first 2 but can't recall how many hours.

As far as observation is concerned, if you want to observe, many hospitals will arrange for you to do some job shadowing.
